About Lenovo Press

Lenovo Press creates high quality technical publications on Lenovo data center products. We produce the bulk of our pre-sale technical documents in-house but we also engage Lenovo subject matter experts from around the world to produce books and papers on a wide range of planning and implementation topics.

Examples of what we do:

  • We produce product guides on our servers, switches, storage, and options.
  • We produce books and papers on positioning, planning and implementation topics.
  • We produce videos on a variety of topics in formats ranging from quick 1-minute intro videos to fully-fledged walk-through videos of up to 20 minutes.

You can find all of these and more on our web site. You can also subscribe to our weekly newsletter plus you can sign up to receive daily alerts about updates to specific documents that interest you.

If you have any feedback, we'd love to hear it. Email us at or leave a review comment on any of the document pages.
